Microsoft has announced the free games coming to Xbox Games With Gold in October 2017.
October’s Games with Gold lineup features another decent crop of titles for the Xbox One, and some dusty old classics for the Xbox 360
From October 1st you can pick up Fullbright’s influential Gone Home. The game has long been considered a classic, but we expect there’s a sizeable audience that has always been hesitant to try it out. Now’s your chance, so don’t pass it up.
Also coming to the Xbox One is The Turing Test. Bulkhead Interactive’s first person puzzle game isn’t shy about its influences, but it’s well-crafted, and provides a memorable and thought-provoking experience.
October’s Xbox 360 selection isn’t quite as thrilling. Rayman 3 HD is available from October 1st, and Medal of Honour – Airborne lands on October 16th. Both 360 titles are backwards compatible and playable on Xbox One.
Xbox Games With Gold – October 2017
- Gone Home: Console Edition – October 1 to 31 on Xbox One
- The Turing Test – October 16 to November 15 on Xbox One
- Rayman 3 HD – October 1 to 15 on Xbox One and Xbox 360
- Medal of Honor – Airborne – October 16 to 31 on Xbox One and Xbox 360
Don’t forget, you can still download three of September’s Games with Gold releases. Battlefield 3 and Forza Motorsport 5 are available until the end of this month, and Oxenfree is available until October 15th.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
